    Default Outside Temperature Sensor

    Hi

    I'm new here so I'll firstly say hello to everyone!

    Anyway the outside temperature sensor on my Vectra seems to have a problem i.e its constantly reading about 6 degrees higher than it should be. I've tried cleaning the sensor but no luck. Does anyone know the part number for the sensor and if its a tricky job to fit it

    Cheers

    Finty

    Hi Finty, welcome to the site.

    I had similar trouble with the sensor in an astra after a service. Took it back and they re-callibrated it, worked fine after that.

    Welcome Finty - The sensor is to be found behide the front bumber, simply unplugs - very easy to change. OPen the bonnet and look central down towards the bottom of the rad. The little black plug is the sensor. Hope you get sorted
